Likes: He likes going for car rides to the bank or just a short trip into town and he likes going for rides in the Semi when my father has a load to the twin cities. He doesn't mind getting a nice warm shower (he prefers showers)
Pet-Peeves: He doesn't like dogs, stray cats or stangers. He growls when he sees an animal or a person outside or when the door opens.
Favorite Toy: His favorite toy is the Twitchy tail toy and his catnip mouse with a feather tail. He likes anything with feathers. He can't resist the lazer dot chace. He always accepts the chance when Gracie invites him to play or just falls on him or pins him.
Favorite Nap Spot: He likes napping on my lap. He usually finds a place on my lap between me & my laptop. (Like he is right now) Most of the time he's not comfortable as long as he's on my lap. He also likes resting ontop of the blue chair & the gray chair.
Favorite Food: He loves food and cat treats. He is a messy eater and he prefers Purina Indoor Cat Food Formula.
Skills: He is an excellent jumper. He can pretty much jump as high as 5ft in the hair after his Twitchy tail toy and he can carry on a conversation with you.
Arrival Story: His my only normal cat....now that I think of it, he's not normal either. He growls at people like a dog and doesn't mind taking a shower.
Bio: Spider is the once in a lifetime cat. He is well-behaved most of the time the other 25% of the time is a normal curious mischevious cat. There was a rumor that my parents wanted to find him a new home when he was still a kitten and of course I was heartbroken. I really had no say in the matter. Spider went to live with my aunt or godmother up in Two Harbors, MN for a few weeks and that didn't work so he came back to live at my parents' house. I was happy that we weren't going to give him away. Later on my parents are grateful they didn't because they really do love him now.
Favorite Places to Visit:: Two Harbors, Minnesota- have family there. Belgrade, Minnesota- lived there for most of life and come to visit when my mom comes home to visit her parents from college. Lived in Ely, Minnesota for a year.
Spyiider was diagnosed this past fall with a heart condition where the walls are too thick in his heart. The vet didn't say how long he has left to live, but his medications should help prolong his life for a few more years.
I'm not sure what meds he is on, but he has to take one in the morning and two at night (one of those 2/day) crushed in his wet food. He probably thinks he has it easier now because he gets soft or wet cat food two times a day which he loves! And now he has my dad wrapped around his paw and meows at my dad saying he's hungry at 5am and 7pm.
I'm still away at college finishing (1 year left!) up my degree 6 hours away and its hard for me not being home with him. Everytime I come home to visit, I make sure to play some of his favorite games while I'm home, like peakaboo. He usually never leaves my side and occupies my bed at night, since that's HIS room too.
I hope Spyiider will be with us for awhile and my heart will surely be broken when he's gone.
I have finally moved up to Ely!!!!
I'm still adjusting to the new change, but it was worth it. The other two cats can be a bother sometimes, but they seem like nice cats.
I have a vet appoitment tomorrow to update my shots. Shouldn't be too scary. I mean I've been to vet before and it wasn't that bad of an experience. The people there are very nice.
So far I like living with my mom and dad.
I might not be able to live up in Ely with my mom and dad because Precious and Elvis aren't declawed and their medical history is currently unknown.
My mom was devastated when her father informed her that he won't allow me to live up there unless Precious and Spider are declawed or have their Leukemia vaccination.
I sure do hope I'm able to eventually live up in Ely with my mom and dad.
